Government Relations Workshops
Webinar and in-person legislative workshop in Washington, DC, on March 22 and 23, 2012
IRA Government Relations Director Rich Long leads this March 22 and 23, 2012 workshop both virtually (as a webinar) and in-person. At this critical time for education, all of you will learn how to influence literacy policy and funding at the federal level, including the LEARN Act and ESEA. You will also learn how to influence literacy policy in your state and get the latest information on other education issues such as Core Standards and teacher evaluation, among others.
In-person participants will attend the sessions at IRA, 444 N. Capitol St. NW, Washington, DC 20001, Room 333, and will visit your representatives on Capitol Hill, a great opportunity to directly influence them.
Virtual participants will log-in to the sessions via computer and be encouraged to email their representatives with requests to support solid literacy policy. Log-in details will be emailed to you. (Please have camera and microphone on your computer, if possible.)
